14.8% of learners are eligible for free school meals compared with the Welsh average of about 17%. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

No pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Two point five per cent of learners currently learn English as an additional language. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The school’s intake represents the full range of ability. Just less than 2% of pupils have statements of special educational needs (SEN). This figure is slightly below the average for Wales as a whole. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The headteacher took up his post in 2002. The present senior leadership team (SLT) is comprised of one deputy headteacher, two assistant headteachers and a business manager. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Three additional professional development posts have been created to increase the capacity of the leadership team to support whole-school developments. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The school is one of two schools in North Wales who make up the Innovation Hub in collaboration with iNET. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The school seeks to make its motto “We care” a reality in the lives of all learners. Itcares about learners’ academic development and their wellbeing in equal measure. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
